This the Iwashimizu Hachimangu, a Shinto shrine in the city of Yawata in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. It was built during the Heian period as a place of worship to the god Hachiman with the desire to protect the Imperial House of Japan. In The Tale of Heike, the Taira on the eve of war sent official messengers to four shrines: Iwashimizu, Kamo, Kasuga, and Ise Grand Shrine to pray for the safe return of Emperor Antoku and the Three Sacred Treasures. -A.
